Altered Perceptions

Robin Wiltse

Altered Perceptions is a meditative, deeply personal return to creative work from Kalso based artist Robin Wiltse which explores the stories and narratives surrounding the recent death of her 17-year-old daughter from bone cancer.
Inspired by the paintings of Hieronymus Bosch and his depictions of Hell on Earth, this series of felted works depicts a world plunged into chaos and terrifying darkness yet marked by shimmering moments of precious beauty and value. Death and grief and the shifted realities they cause, although common experiences, are rarely talked about in our modern culture. Ultimately, there is strength in not knowing why we are here, not knowing what meaning our life has, and how it is interconnected. To not know means you can be open to every beautiful possibility and learn so much in the search.
